All the fun of Midnight, 12 Hours Early: Ring in 2015 at the Zoo’s Noon Year’s Eve

Everyone loves to ring in the New Year, but for little ones midnight is just too late. That’s why the Toledo Zoo presents Noon Year’s Eve, sponsored by Meijer, on Wednesday, Dec. 31, 2014. Your family will watch the ball rise at the stroke of noon, sing a chorus of “Auld Lang Syne” and toast the New Year with family-friendly fun! Activities run 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Enjoy fun games and activities; watch an ice-carving demonstration; and even sign some New Year’s ReZOOlutions – simple things your family can do to make 2015 a little greener. And of course, the award-winning children’s zoo, Nature’s Neighborhood, will be open, too!

This is also a great time to enjoy the outdoor ice slide, sponsored by Taylor Automotive Family; on Dec. 31 only, the ice slide opens early, at 11 a.m. All this, on top of animal feeding and enrichment demonstrations all across the Zoo, is included free with regular Zoo admission.

Dec. 31 is important for another reason, too; it’s one of the last days to enjoy the Lights Before Christmas presented by KeyBank, which this year run through Sunday, Jan. 4, 2015 to coincide with Winterfest activities in downtown Toledo. The Lights open at 3 p.m. daily; closing hours vary. Toledo Zoo members receive unlimited free Monday-Thursday visits to the Lights, plus one free weekend visit.

The Zoo can be part of your family’s New Year’s resolutions. With many people resolving to get fitter in 2015, now is the perfect time to register for the springtime Medical Mutual Dart Frog Dash. It’s a fun 5K run/walk through the Zoo and surrounding areas, with a separate 1K “fun run” for the kids. Sign up at Noon Year’s Eve and you’ll get help every step of the way, with regular tips on training, nutrition and more – right up to race day.

The Lights Before Christmas runs through Jan. 4, 2015, starting at 3pm daily; closing hours vary. For more information, visit toledozoo.org or call 419.385.4040. Lucas County residents are admitted free of charge on non-holiday Mondays from 10 a.m. to noon. ID showing proof of residency is required.
